Yes the situation in Japan is dire. There are problems at the nuclear reactors. Do we really need the hysteria though?
Today it is being widely reported that the ocean near the plant is now Radioactive. What is not being reported is that the contamination is from Radioactive Iodine which has a half life of 8 days…..god forbid the Media should include this little factoid. They would much rather hysterically shout to the world….Radio Active Contamination.
They report on runs of Iodine here on the westcoast…..but who raised the alarm?
The much more serious problem is the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.
